Competition and cooperation 1. Competition : a player benefits at the expense of others, e.g., zero-sum game. “You win, I lose. I win, you lose.” 2. Cooperation : both/all players can benefit (or lose), e.g., non-zero-sum game. “Both can win. Both can lose.” 3. Sometimes it is obvious which game it is. Sometimes it is not.
